  • French Navy downs two drones over Red Sea as Houthis take aim at ‘Israeli’ ships

    Multiple drone attacks originating in Yemen detected overnight; U.S. military MQ-9 drone shot down near Yemen

    The French Navy has shot down two drones over the Red Sea where Yemen’s Houthi rebels have been attacking ships, the defense ministry in Paris said Tuesday.

    The Navy, which has two frigates deployed in the area, detected “multiple drone attacks originating in Yemen” overnight Monday to Tuesday, before destroying two of the unmanned aircraft, the ministry said.

    The attack came a day after the European Union formally launched a naval mission to protect Red Sea shipping from the Iran-backed Houthis, who control much of war-torn Yemen.

  • Suez Canal revenues down nearly 50% due to crisis in Red Sea, says Egyptian president

    The Suez Canal’s revenues dropped by at least 40-50% amid the recent developments in the Red Sea, President of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said. "The situation in the Gaza Strip and events related to it affect Egypt as well. In particular, previously the Suez Canal brought in some $10 bln per day, and now we register a decrease in revenues by 40-50%," he said at the opening of EGYPES-2024 (Egypt Energy Show), adding that despite this, Egypt "still tries to meet its obligations to partners" in various sectors.

    On January 16, Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority Osama Rabie also noted that the Suez Canal’s revenues were falling. In the first half of January the canal’s revenues fell by 41% year-on-year, while the number of vessels passing through the Suez Canal went down by 30% compared with the same period last year, with their tonnage having decreased by 41%. Egypt’s revenues from the Suez Canal exceeded $10 bln last year. The canal is one of the Egyptian government’s biggest cash cows and helps the country boost its dollar reserves.

  • CENTCOM intercepts Iranian weapons shipment intended for Houthis

    A U.S. Coast Guard cutter, forward deployed to the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) area of responsibility, seized advanced conventional weapons and other lethal aid originating in Iran and bound to Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen from a vessel in the Arabian Sea on Jan. 28.

    The U.S. Coast Guard Sentinel-class fast-response cutter USCGC Clarence Sutphin Jr (WPC 1147), assigned to U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, located the vessel and boarded it in the Arabian Sea. The boarding team discovered over 200 packages that contained medium-range ballistic missile components, explosives, unmanned underwater/surface vehicle (UUV/USV) components, military-grade communication and network equipment, anti-tank guided missile launcher assemblies, and other military components.

    The direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of such aid violates U.N. Security Council Resolution 2216 (as extended and renewed by resolutions 2675 and 2707). “This is yet another example of Iran’s malign activity in the region, ” said Gen. Michael Erik Kurilla, CENTCOM commander. “Their continued supply of advanced conventional weapons to the Houthis is in direct violation of international law and continues to undermine the safety of international shipping and the free flow of commerce.”

  • Yemen’s #Houthis attack US ship in Red Sea

    Yemen’s Houthi rebels have attacked the Star Iris commercial vessel which the attackers have identified as belonging to the United States, Yahya Saria, spokesman for the rebel movement Ansar Allah, said.

    "#Yemen’s naval forces targeted the US ship Star Iris in the Red Sea with anti-ship missiles," Saria told Al Masirah television as he described the strikes as direct and accurate.

    Earlier, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) reported that an unidentified merchant vessel came under attack 40 nautical miles south of the Yemeni port of Al-Mukha. According to UKMTO, two missiles were fired at the ship, but the crew was not injured.

    The Star Iris bulk carrier sailing under the flag of Marshall Islands departed from the Brazilian port of Vila do Conde for Iran’s Bandar Imam Khomeini exactly on this date a month ago, Marine Traffic said. The crew last reported their location from the central Red Sea earlier on Monday.
